Built in the 1870s, this charming adobe home surrounded by rose gardens was once owned by E. F. Sanguinetti, who earned the title “Merchant Prince of Yuma” for his booming retail operations across the region.  Sanguinetti’s business interests expanded to many industries, including banking, mining, farming, ice production, public utilities, and more.  Today, the Arizona Historical Society serves as caretaker for the Sanguinetti House Museum, which stands as a testament to Sanguinetti’s remarkable legacy.  Open to the public for tours throughout the day, visit the Sanguinetti House and see why it is known as the Jewel of Historic Yuma!

Each year a new featured exhibit is announced and for the 2017/18 season the Sanguinetti House will be exploring Riverlore, sharing the stories of steamboat captain Jack Mellon, along with tales of life along the mysterious Colorado River during the 19th century.

Based on the New York Times bestselling book, Paramount Pictures and Pure Flix Entertainment will release the blockbuster film SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME in theatres nationwide on October 20, 2017. In addition, Crossroads Mission is hosting an exclusive, pre-release red carpet charity event at Harkins Theater on October 18, 2017, in order to raise awareness and support for their Mission. The movie will be shown in its entirety at two show times: 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.  There will be a time of fellowship and hors d’oeuvres half an hour prior to both showings.  Tickets are $10 and are available at Crossroads Mission.  For group purchases contact: (928) 210-4974 or (928) 261-9836.

SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME is the true story of international art dealer Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear), who befriends a homeless man (Djimon Hounsou) in hopes of saving his struggling marriage to Debbie (Renée Zellweger), a woman whose dreams will lead all three of them on the most remarkable journey of their lives. Jon Voight plays Hall’s father, with whom he reconciles thanks to the revelations of his new life.

With much of the story taking place at a rescue mission, Pure Flix Entertainment and Paramount Pictures have provided the opportunity for helping and compassion organizations to host pre-release red carpet events on October 18, 2017. These events were created for such organizations to increase their donor and volunteer engagement. The ultimate goal of these events, as inspired by the powerful messages found in the film, is to make a difference in their communities by serving others.
